Stayed at the Ben Nevis bunkhouse the night before with a group of ladies from my boxing/running club. We started early the next morning, the weather was terrible! We split into two groups as some off us wanted to go to the information centre first (a 20 minute walk away) so we decided we would catch up with the others. On the way back up we bumped into the others who had decided to come back down as they said it was too windy. We decided to see how far up we could go and luckily for us the weather did get a little better and we made it to the top:) it was worth it even though the weather wasn’t the best, just means we will have to do it again sometime!!
